Honduras Olvin Fernandez

RED APPLE | TANGERINE | SYRUPY
This is our fourth year bringing in coffee from Olvin Fernandez. The farm, Mi Paz, is located, coincidentally, in the Santa Barbara region of Honduras, which is a fairly high elevation area surrounding nearby Lake Yojoa. The farm is on the smaller side, at 3.4 hectares (~8.4 acres), but Olvin grows several varieties on the farm, including Bourbon, Pacas, and Catuai.
Although yields from this year’s harvest were lower than usual all over Honduras, we managed to secure this coffee through Beneficio San Vicente, which acts as an intermediary for many farmers in the area, as well as serving as a washing station to process the coffees.
To us, Honduran coffees always exhibit unique flavor profiles, especially the coffees we have the privilege to taste from San Vicente. There’s sweet citrus, but also red apple, rounded out by chocolate and nuttiness. Olvin’s coffee strikes a balance of making for both an approachable filter coffee as well as espresso, with syrupy sweetness and just enough fruit in the cup to distinguish this coffee.
